NEW! Bedale
Church Lane
Jennie and Alan Harmer

This delightful south-facing garden has transformed in the 42 years that the owners have lived there, from a neglected field into a family garden and, now it has changed character again and is a tranquil and very private haven. The central lawned area leads off to several interconnected zones with seating and features including ponds, wildflower areas, and patios, surrounded by wonderful plants and spectacular views. The garden is terraced to accommodate the hillside position and there are numerous changes of level. Jennie's Art Studio will be open with artworks for sale.
